Vintage Typewriter Table to Side Table (and Drink Table!)

I transformed a vintage typewriter table with paint and repurposed it as both a side table in the living room, and a drink table in the dining room.

I found my typewriter table at one of two thrift stores that benefit sheltered animals. Here's the before! It has a veneer top and a rubber trim along the sides. I sometimes like to keep vintage items as they are, but this table looked kind of blehhhh. So I imaged it freshened up with some pretty blue paint.

I removed the table tops and started painting the legs. Instead of spray paint, I thought I'd give chalky finish paint a try. This is teal chalky finish paint that I lightened with white.

The veneer was still in good condition, otherwise I could have cut some wood to replace them (which I may do down the road). I painted the top in teal chalky finish paint.
